. ffulti.re a lot of other th sof ohe things you have to do when urt president of the united states and i think he really did make it worse by sitting down with "the view." i love "the view," i love the show, they're all friends. i'm a big fan. but in was not the moment to sit aton mitt romney, by barack obama, by everyone else. but not this day and at this time. >> jamie rubin, there is a schedule. obviously that the campaign feels it wants to keep. they have a lot of eventsoming up justtoday. e sorough sds 15 minutes. to something. what would you say about this? >> well, i come from the foreign policy side of the house and worked at th state department and the president's schedule would come up in meetings with the white house. an there's always thisen eee ection calculations, the political calculations, and those in the foreign policy professionals. you know, from the standpoint of a professional, obviously you'd ke to see the president engage with these crucial countries, not just our friend israel, but a lot of friends that we hin w o aa p it, countries where they're at crucial times
the long-term. despite the bumpy path and the disturbing images, it's in the united states fundamental interest that people have the ability to choose their own governments, that the governments be democratic and free. that's in our long-term best interest. we need to reinforce that. >> we are in the middle of a heated presidential campaign. there are different foreign policy visions. that's why we wanted to dedicate the hour today to understand these different views. mitt romney spoke out this week, criticizing the administration, talking about whether the united states was apologizing for some of the initial response to this. these were his comments this week. >> the administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in egypt instead of condemning their actions. i think it's a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values. >> our embassies did not stand up for free speech in this initial response to this violence. and the republican charge is that it's weakness on the part of this administration that invites this kin
, criticizing the administration, talking about whether the united states was apologizing for some of the initial response to this. these were his comments this week. >> the administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in egypt instead of condemning their actions. i think it's a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values. >> our embassies did not stand up for free speech in this initial response to this violence. and the republican charge is that it's weakness on the part of this administration that invites this kind of chaos that the administration has not been tough enough on radical extremists that are beginning to take root in these countries. how do you respond to that? >> first of all, i think the american people and certainly our diplomats and development experts putting their lives on the line every day around the world expect from our leadership unity in times of challenge. and strong, steady, steadfast leadership of the sort that president obama has been providing. with respect to this, i think,
are reaction to a little-known amateur movie produced in the united states which ridiculed the prophet mohammed. it gained attention because an obscure florida pastor began promoting it, the same man who triggered deadly riots in afghanistan when he threatened to burn the koran. we want to go straight to cairo where we find nbc chief foreign correspondent, richard engel. richard, fill us in a little more this morning. >> reporter: good morning. a libyan source has told nbc news that the u.s. ambassador who was visiting the consulate was killed along with three others. not sure of the nationality of those three others. the u.s. state department has not confirmed this, but this has been told to us by a senior security source in libya. we've been also told that the libyan prime minister and the libyan president will both be speaking today about this subject, offering their condolences to the united states and to the family of the fallen ambassador. and this is according to the report. we were told that when gunmen and a mob stormed the consulate building, they first attacked it with rpgs, then the
, was an apology according to mitt romney and put at the feet of the president of the united states by mitt romney says in part that the embassy in cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of muslims as we ken dumb efforts to offend believers of all religions. today the anniversary of september 11th americans are honoring our patriots those that serve our nation is the fitting democracy. respect is a cornerstone of american democracy and reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others. this was released by the embassy in cairo apparently without washington's approval six hours before the protests. not as an apology for the protests or explanation or response. you've been in embassies around the world, top levels of the state department in washington, first of all, do the press officers at embassies have the authority to release a statement like that if intelligence and other information indicates that they may be experiencing protests? >> they certainly do. we have one of the most
of democracy in that region or really for the united states. so i think it's arguable that e iddot s joan it baby sit these leaders all the time. these sort of meetings that they're having now in a lot of ways are about the optics and i don't think th it was necessary for the president to pander to the jewish american vote meeting wit netanyahu, because 's in a goodlace dohi there were many imperatives for the president to sort of put on a show of taking care of this leader or that leader. he's also made it a point of his foreign policy to give america enough distance from some of the gulf states if a revolution takes ace e weavehe do t side of the opposition. >> also right, nobody is voting on this issue. this is insid baseball. do you think someone is at home saying he didn't meet with these leaders so i'm not going to vote for him. >> i'm thinking this more in terms of serving america's instd the something to be said not rock the boat strategy, the exon nous event that might change the race if you are the obama -- >> exon nous. >> it's a big word. a great crossword word. if you are the
is base ed based in the united states and that's to whom the video is attributed as why the attacks were made on american properties abroad. we don't know if there were more complex reasons. this is not the first time that perceived criticism of islam has been reacted to violently in the muslim world. a florida pastor promoted what he was calling "burn a koran day." that spurred days of protests in afghanistan killing nine people there. in 2005 it was cartoons depict depicting the prophet mohammed. and u.s. service members accidentally burned copies of the koran in order to dispose of them. it sparked riots throughout afghanistan killing 30 people overall. but again, breaking news at this hour. a day of violent protests in libya and egypt. the american consulate and the american embassy in egypt. and reports still unconfirmed at this time that one american may have been killed at that consulate attack. this is an evolving story. we're still trying to get confirmation, but we'll update you as we learn more. that's tonight's breaking news. >>> it was 11 years ago today on the day of the te
and the rest of the world kns that the united states is tnget iet a weapon or capability of getting a weapon. >> first of all, i think there's a balance. you need to strike a balance. what many including governor romney and congressman ryan and others around the world have said you have to be specific about this capability point. that you have to be able to alth iannd the world that just building the weapon or getting close to building the weapon, is not the red line. having the tools at their disposal, that they would be easily assembled is a big problem and muste stoed because if they have the tls aem onasy assemble a weapon, it will have the impact that the iranian leadership wants. it will enable them to establish some set of region in the back their terror proxy operations throughezbollah and hamasimtyowm to just put pressure on friends and adversaries of ours and that's unacceptable and drawing that line does not mean you have to say at this specific moment at this specific level of enrichment we will do yrz. anopay that there's enough to criticize in what happened in libya, for instan
, the israelis do not believe that there is as much time as you well know as the united states believes. what can we do to persuade prime minister netanyahu not to take preemptive action because there is more time, or do you agree there is more time for sanctions to work? >> i would agree with secretary clinton. i agree with that. additionally, the p5 plus 1 negotiations, i understand, have resumed. i think what needs to be done candidly and i have suggested this privately to the administration, i think we have to learn whether the supreme leader wants an agreement and if he does, what it will take. it may well be that the united states has to bilaterally step up and take use of this opportunity, to interface dir t directly with the supreme leader. i understand israel's position. i also know that the united states has been working hand and glove with israel, in many different ways, many of them classified, so there has been really unbridled cooperation with israel. so, i think we have done everything that we should be doing. >> and senator, just briefly, you're suggesting direct talks between th
," the ladieies of the view have the president of the united states. that has caused a ruckus. >> i would say, no matter what jay carney just said from the podium there, i would guarantee you the president would like to have the phrase "bump in the road" back. i think understands that politically when talking ate the deaths not just of the ambassador but three other americans isn't going to be the best thing either politically or just a human perspective. i would say, though, i think it's easy to forget this, but i would say this election will not be decided on foreign policy. this election will be decided on the economy, what you've seen in the last three or four weeks in national polling in the great state polling that nbc has been a part of. you've seen that advantage that mitt romney had on who is better able to handle the economy. you've seen it either shrink or disappear. he just cannot win this election unless he can build a real statistical advantage to say look, president obama hasn't gotten the job done, my background, my experience allows me to do so. i just think the more he talks
the bus. now we've seen a very different timeline from israel and the united states from netanyahu. netanyahu says within months iran will have gone beyond the point of no return. american intelligence believes there's more time. where do we stand now with israel and is mitt romney -- >> we stand -- >> that the president has thrown israel under the bus? >> well, first of all, the term throwing israel under the bus is really a remarkable -- you know, it's an unbelievably cynical explosivetive term that is also a lie. it is a fundamental lie. and mitt romney ought to be ashamed of himself for continuing to say it when he knows that prime minister netanyahu and defense minister ehud barak have both said this administration has the strongest security and military cooperation with israel it has ever had. ever. and the president has taken steps to put america in a position to deal with iran with whatever eventuality may be necessary, and i mean whatever eventuality may be necessary. the president made that crystal clear in his speech at the united nations. and, yesterday, prime minister
. the coalition of governments is ing iran untae. 's t united states will do what they must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> the president is taking an unconventional role in u.n. week, opting not to hold by lateral meetings. sil clinton's cking secretary calendar full of those meetings. meanwhile they're zeroing in where they called the recent events in the middle east bumps in the road i was pretty certain and contue to be pyer that there are going to be bumps in the road. >> iran is on the cusp of having a nuclear capability. we have tu malt in syria and also pakistan. i don't condehe bumps in the road. >> both men spoke at the clinton global initiative speaking out against forced labor and sex trafficking and romney laying out his plan for a pros pair path. lestarat tle so, steve, you have a theory for why foreign policy the talk of the town this week. >> well, because it's u.n. week. i mean that's the obvious. 'roi o on a limb here. >> i'm glad we built this up. i wouldn't be surprised if it's still something they're talking about after u.n. week and it strikes me that th
's not giving serious interviews to anybody -- >> who? >> barack obama, the president of the united states. >> because romney did at a really opportune me. >> but he's going tllf e acoime for netanyahu, but time for "the view," time for -- >> no time for netanyahu. >> that was good. >> i know. i know. >> wally from "leave it to beav" was in that. >> was jerry mathers. >>o,t beave. >> asked about the newly released tax returns. >> all right. >> take a look. >> governor romney on "60 minutes" was asked, does he think it's fair that he pays a lower tax rate than somody who mg 0, a year? and he said yes. i think it's fair and i also think that's the way you get economic growth. i've got a different vision about the way we grow an economy. i thk you grow the econo from the middle out not from the top do. l meskyou, jon meacham, do you think the president was more presidential on the view or on "entertainment tonight"? >> i think "the view." >> clearly. love the view. >> there's this long tradition ofth remember -- >> fdr on "the view." >> fdr was actually on "inside edition," i think. >> it was
, the united states is reopening our embassy in tripoli. >> that was one yr ago today. in his speech today, here is what we do know the president will say today, quote. we must aferm that our future will be determined by people like chris stevens. he recommit the united states to the values othe arab sprg ople ewh wgor s ,que, the freedom to detmine their destiny and we will see if he uses exactly that phrase. and also warn iran that although still time for diplomacy, te is not limited. make no mistakes a nucar armed cin and why a coalition of countries is holding the iran government accountable and why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon he uses the word -- the word containment. at's a b declaration the foat wo the remarks are directed not just at an international audience but a domestic one. mitt romney who was accusing the president of damaging ties with israel and not being tough enough on iran, yesterday attacked the president's answer to a "60 minutes" questio about ether the rect mdle st upng g him any doubts about support of govern
kippur. ahmadinejad delivers his usual diatribe against israel and the united states. >> no suspension for belichick but that won't end the furor over the replacement refs. a deal in sight? does this mean to he would tackle the deficit? >>> ann romney dishes to ja leno about mitt. >> would you say he is frugal or cheap? >> cheap. >> cheap. really cheap. okay. >> do you want to know what he does when he leave the house? he turns off the h water heat. >>o yo knot hoe w we come back from the house, he forgets he has to turn the hot water heater on, cold shers, they're not that bad. >> indeed. good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in new york. dueling messages in ohio where in a few moments both ndides wi beelin ch appearing only about 100 miles from each other but with sharply different messages. as president obama widens his ohio lead in the latest polls, joining me for our daily fix, chris cizilla, managing editor of post politics.com and "whington po" pic reporter karen tu multi. chris, first talk about the polls. how significant is it the double-digit lead in some polls now, cbs/"new yor
to prove things that i don't. he's president of the united states. very effective speaker. >> mitt romney has an advantage because he's been through 20 of these debates in the primaries over the last year. >> both candidates are in debate prep mode. the president practiced on friday with senator john kerry. last night on "60 minutes" we got a debate preview. the economy policy and the role of government. both asked about campaign hi hiccups. >> that's not the campaign. that was me. that's not a campaign. i've got a very effective campaign that's doing a very good job. but not everything i say is elegant. >> the president has acknowledged he failed to deliver on one of his biggest campaign promises. if you ask me the biggest disappointment is we vice president changed the tone in washington as much as we would like? >> you don't bear responsibility for that? >> as president, i bear responsibility for everything, to some degree. >> to some degree is an interesting little fighting words between the parties in washington. the two talked about the role of governmen government. >> presidencies
that the united states will, quote, do what it must. >> america wants to resoe this issue through diplomacy, and we believ e' still time and space to do so. that time is not limited. >> the president defended the right to free speech while at the same time condemning the murder of an american ambassador and attacking the embassies ovseas >>reooro excusing the killing of innocence, no video to stifying the attack on the embas embassy. >> joini me now both of "time" magazi. thank you for your time. a lot gng on today. interestingly enough have to starthismeffy sg thesent givg this big foreign policy speech before the u.n., he just tweeted out about the nfl referee situation. don't know what that says, if he is just comfortable foreign policy wise lng t lls,he showing he can juggle a bunch of things but nernls the president's personal signature saying nfl on both sides of the aisle hopes the lockout is over so. ma sense of it. ie sit hours he rublins he's retwooeting about the nfl refs. >> it's the most important thing going on right now. no, there's a lot going on right now. this is f foreign
president of the united states. >> romney's bus has another pot hole to navigate around this week. the campaign released his 2011 tax documents on friday afternoon, along with a 20-year summary of his returns since 1990. the 2011 returns show the governor paid 14.1% in taxes, on over $13 million of investment income. president obama's campaign is already bringing romney's taxes back to the forefront releasing this ad in ohio today. >> mitt romney attacked 47% of americans who pay no income tax including veterans, elderly, the disabled. >> my job is not to worry about those people. >> doesn't the president have to worry about everyone? mitt romney paid just 14.1% in taxes last year. he keeps millions in bermuda and the cayman islands, won't release his tax returns before 2010. maybe instead of attacking others on taxes, be romney should come clean on his. >> and this weekend the president made sure to highlight what is by now quite obvious to most americans namely that mitt romney is not strapped for cash. >> and i want to keep your taxes low. but i can afford to pay a little more
to be in the united states senate, given some of his views. but it is possible, as jim vandehei said, it's possible he could win this race. and it's clear tt a lot of republicans and the republican establishment now looking at the mathrehinking aut cg backin tnk the republican senatorial committee is very likely to put money into this race. i think the polls will tighten. as horrific as it will be to many people not just on the left but in the middle of the electorate, i think there's a reasonable chance he could win this race. >> not oy do igree with roy blunt did., e, at he is moving up in leadership, and he came out and supported akin yesterday. so that is -- >> the senator from michigan. >> yeah, that's the leading indicator. that tells you that the republican committee is going to go full in, and they see this as their way to rn nt a itllutegng control. and i can tell you that some of the very people now supporting him are republicans who tell me that working with him in the house has been horrible, that they jt think he's a nightmare, but they thk that he could be the solution to winning the sen
they believe that the president of the united states doesn't talk it to world leaders all the time? i understand their fix yation o making an indirect attack. the average voter sitting at home and watching president obama does not sit there and think, he's sitting out there wasting his time not talking it to people. >> they see he's in new york and not meeting and you've got this headline, for example, in first read that says it's obama's do no harm week. they do see that. >> i think they do, but at the end of the day when you're the president and commander in chief and done what he's accomplished on that front, i think you've got an enormous amount of latitude. nobody will second-guess his abl ability to reach out and influence world leaders. i don't think that's an incredible line of attack. this is the part where the romney campaign is really struggling. these flailing attacks you see where they're trying to find something that will stick. that is not a strategy to win. that is a strategy to lose. >> ann, your last thought here, university of cincinnati poll, president obama 51% an
? >> i'm going to win pennsylvania and i'm going to become the next president of the united states. we're going to win. there's no question in my mind. we're going to begin. if instead i know -- instead, when i become president. i'm going to become the next president. >> i believe if the election were held today, romney would win by four or five points. >> no, they don't. they're just caught up in the margin of anger. >> half the country is simply uninformed. they don't know anything. >> they believe they're entitled. >> that doesn't add up to much, governor. >> lap dog liberals. >> the left based mainstream media. >> has the obama campaign ep gauged in character assassinati assassination. >> oh sure. >> i'm not familiar with precisely exactly what i said but i stand by what i said whatever it was. >>> we begin this friday with no shortage of confidence from mitt romney even as his ineptember draws to a close with more bad news for the republican nominee. this time it's in the form of nine polls in nine battleground states with the president leading all nine. now, in britain 999 is the
conference when he was in louisiana and being horrified by how scared the president of the united states looked, how disoriented he looked, how it seemed like they did not know where they were going. and i just want to do a hat tip right here, which, again, in this environment you probably aren't supposed to do. you know what? while george bush looked scared and disoriented that day, that day only, rudy giuliani stepped up. and he became america's mayor on that day. and he kept people advised of what was going on and was a great leader for that time. >> it was one of the great acts of spiritual and popular leadership that we'll ever see. and, you know, mayor giuliani is a big churchillian. but he was reading and looking at in those days and weeks a book by john lucash called "five days of may" in may of 1940 between churchill and chamberlain and halifax. and it was a marvelous case of leadership of being there. >> well, and like churchill and we're not comparing him to churchill, but for that time, though, like churchill, part of it was leadership, part of it was a great act. telling peo
of the united states. this is a time where it's easy to meet with some of these folks. ther was one comment from an adviser. he saiif hetth erenhe going have to meet with ten and you're like, well, that's the job sometimes. you know, this doesn't seem like a very defensible position, not to have met with o world leader when it came to the united nations. >> well, i don't want to get into the president's schedule ancertnly is ist fo cleagues at the white house, but i do know when you're the president of the united states, you're always tking to world leaders. it's not just one. in just the last day there ee be a l ofalksithe world leaders. i think that will continue. we've discussed it. i think that these are questions for my colleagues at the white house and we're focused on what we're doing in ohio today. >> all right. speaking of ohio, mitt romney's got a new ad out. i want to play a little clip for and get your reaion it. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle klass families. the differences my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by ho
conservative governor in the united states. florida, i understand it's a swinstate in presidential election, but it's a swing state when you have,ou know guys running like mitt romney and john mccain and bob dole. a tough conservative wins florida. >> what was the impact of that ad -- i couldn't believe when he picked ryan, the democrats ran an ad of some guy whoooke yaus granny off the edge of a cliff in a wheelchair. it was subtle. >> it was subtle but that doesn't work because marco rubio got elected by promising. the one big date that he had with charlie cristndhe deatppt, talked about raising social security to 70. bob graham, one of the most popular democratic politicians in florida history, always talked about the need of possly raising the retirement age for social security and medicare. therhe are a lot smarter than politicians think. so no, it wasn't that good. let's talk some more about ike because, again, i think the guy is slowly evolving into my favorite president. talk abo- you say he's a war hero whoated war. and i guess ike, after korea, u.s. serviceman wasn't killed? >> ye
with the united states and the iran situatn because you have is clyca all say id he prefers mitt romney to be president and actions and words probably designed to help romney. on the other hand, you have barack the defense minister trying to help obama with the public words and statements. >> i think brack -- >> how will that dice ct b the november election result here? >> i don't think it will be very -- i mean, it might affect the jewish pulation vote more or less but i don't think ehud barack, the defense minister endorsed -- >> when you have netanyahu going out of the way to talk about -- present the image of strained relations and then choosg to go plic and say israel's never usanarobtter friend ithe whi th s -- >> when you are prime minister, you have the upper hand. you're the voice of the country. you are the most important man. you know, when jimmy carter used to say, isrl has no morn policy and only domestic policy. this time in htorye s sody interfering and clearly endorsing one of the sides and it's never happened in the history. and it's doing it in a very delicate moment f
to show that this is above the political cycle here in the united states. look, we've got elections next year in israel. we know what elections are. we know the competition. we know what that involves. this issue of iran and nuclear weapons has to unite all free people. it's not nothing to do with the election. >> can you characterize the relationship between mr. netanyahu and governor romney? are they casual friends? are they good friends? are they acquaintances? >> they've known each other for quite some time, even going back when they were young people. i've been in meetings where the two gentlemen have met and talked. i think it's a good working relationship, as he has a good working relationship with the president where you have mutual respect between the two leaders. under these very lines, the very close relationship between israel and the united states, such a close relationship, an intimate relationship. and every little disagreement, and you can't agree on everything. >> sure. >> gets blown out of proportion like there is some crisis there isn't. we have a good working relation
thane contained. that's why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> the president devoted a large portion of his speech to the arab springnd its fallout. just t weeks after thettac thatilled ambassador chr stevens, the president promised even as we will bring the killers to justice, he will not back down from supporting democracy nor from protecting freedom of speech. indeed, the president extended his spirited defense of free expression even t rks ai hif. as president of our country and commander in chief of our military, i accept that people are going to call me awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. [ applause ] >> i wonder who he's been talking about there. let's get right to our panel now. in washington dana mill bank, political columnist for "the washington post." in west palm beach, florida, msnbc politil analyst professor michael eric dyson who we have persued toeave h mojito by the poolside and in washington, political analyst david corn. david, we know mitt romney behind closed doors is qu
? >> well, that helps mitt romney to be on the same stage with the president of the united states. there's no doubt. it always helps the challenger with the incumbent. the problem, though, is i think what susan pointed out and dana pointed out is that we really don't know who mitt romney is. so the question is which mitt romney will appear on the debate stage? and that will determine whether people will believe whatever candidate shows up at that time. >> all right. dana, real fast, though, president obama has a lot on his agenda. starting tomorrow, he's going to be here in new york city. and what's on the schedule is this high-stakes speech before the u.n. nbc's first read is calling it the president's do-no-harm week. and the reason they're saying that is because he doesn't really have on one-on-ones with any other world leaders. he's got to sit down with the ladies of "the view." sure, i mean, and they're going to hit him with some hard questions. but, you know, it's not going to be the same thing as meeting with world leaders. the romney campaign is going after the president on this
about, the governor who previeded over the farest reaching universal hlthare plan in the united states. ion kwha s. i'm speechless. >> don't miss it on the biggest issues and most eling stories of the day. it airs weeknights at 10:00 p.m. on on msnbc, the place for politics. >>> here's your rst look at e day. kof the dow closed at 13,558 after falling 20 points yesterday. the s&p was down three. the nasdaq lost 19. >>> taking a look at overseas trading this morning, in tokyo the nikkei gained 22 points while in hong kong the hang seng was up 3. >well, it was gloomy data out of europe and another corporate caution flag that stalled marketing monday. minutes before t closing bell caterpillar cut its earnings forecasts for 2013 citing weakness in the world economy. sending shares lower in late tradg. europe's biggest economy is still struggling dampened investors' moods. germany's confidence index fell for a fifth straight month in september. ticle coupled with unconfirmed reports of a privacy breach dragged facebook down 9%. >>> apple dipped despite selling 5 million iphone 5s last week
and saw the president of the united states holding a rally. the obama campaign had booked the same barn on the same date. >> just our luck. that's kind of how -- oh, yeah, figures, the one place which the president also chooses. >> so on the big day, president obama ended his campaign speech with moments to spare before the wedding. the bride rushed into her ceremony and walked down the aisle on time. to extend his apologies for clogging up the parking lot, president obama left behind a wedding gift, a silver tray and a mint julep cup. where he got that, we don't know. >> i used it the first night for sure. love him or hate him, it's a gift from the president. >> unknown fact. along with the football the president of the united states travels with, also travels with a mint julep cup. the newlyweds say they're not democrats, but they admit the cup from the president was by far the coolest wedding gift they received. >>> sam stein, thanks, man, we'll talk to you. >> thanks, guys. >>> up next, senator tom coburn joins the conversation. also, richard wolffe. keep it on "morning joe." does y
